Program Curriculum

Tuck Next Step is intensive and transformational. 

At the heart of the Next Step experience is robust academic content that allows participants to build the strong base in business acumen needed to understand the complexities of today’s business world. During live and asynchronous sessions, you’ll be challenged by faculty and your peers—individuals singularly devoted to excellence, whether in service to their country or on the field of play. You'll be taught by a faculty of more than a dozen professors who are experts in a broad range of topics and who teach in the MBA program at Tuck, rated one of the best business schools in the country.

During 85 hours of instruction time, you'll be immersed in business leadership and professional development activities, building new competencies with every new experience. By the end of the program, you will have widened your aperture to the multitude of career options available to you and prepared yourself with the knowledge and skills needed to pursue whatever comes next.

Two virtual modules bookend a week-long on-campus experience. These virtual modules are each four days long and include live Zoom sessions and 1:1 interaction with our faculty thought-leaders and asynchronous content such as videos, readings, podcasts, and interactive discussion boards, culminating in an extensive career day event with panelists representing a wide range of industries and job functions. Participants can expect approximately four hours of live class sessions each day. This daily work complements an additional six hours of self-paced coursework, two or three extracurricular and social events, and one or two study group meetings.

On campus, participants will have the chance to network with and learn from each other and our faculty in person during classroom sessions and special events. Our Hanover, NH, location in the heart of New England offers a strategic retreat where participants can take time to reflect on their future and build the skills they need to get there.

Next Step is intensive and immersive, and all participants are asked to devote their full attention to it during the weeks the program is happening.
